REMEMBERING THE ONE AND ONLY “GNB”
A couple of months back there was an article in the Times Of India Chennai edition describing GNB Sir as the first poster-boy of Carnatic Music. We would like to go ahead one more step and say that he is Carnatic Music’s only poster-boy. Even for people like us who were very not fortunate to have even a glimpse of him, let alone be able to attend his live concert, the very mention of his name is an inspiration. We would like to thank The Indian Fine Arts Society and Shri M subramanian for having given us the opportunity to perform in the Centenary Celebrations of Sri GN Balasubramanian.
After our concert senior vidwan Shri Trichur Ramachandran sang. His ritigaula alapana was one to be cherished for a long time to come.
It was an occasion where we could meet members of GNB Sir’s family and Prof MS Swaminathan, himself a true legend, who had been invited to be the chief guest.
Below is the link to the report that appeared in the Friday Review of The Hindu Chennai Edition.
